The New Mutants - Reshoots for Harder Cut

Half of the Movie New to Establish Horror Elements

The New Mutants was originally scheduled for theaters in April 2018 - as hardest PG-13 movie ever made. But the release has been postponed for almost 1 entire year so that there would be enough time. That being said, there will be a further delay up until August 2019. As reported by The Tracking Board, there will be reshoots for almost 50% of the movie. It seems as if director Josh Boone originally intended to make an actual horror film that takes in the X-Men universe, planning with an R for the theatrical release. But FOX did not like it at all and insisted on a PG-13. This has also been confirmed by subsequent screenplay versions, the ones that were actually shot. Those are also the ones that were just in post production - right before FOX had a change of heart. The reasons are probably the new Deadpool, which is also rated R, and the incredibly successful It remake. It looks FOX sees more potential in a harder adaption, probably even with an R. Despite rising production costs due to the delay and reshoots.

TR: Those close to the director said he always felt a bit neutered during principal photography, as he was forced to tone down the violence in order to avoid a dreaded R-rating. And because Boone was contractually obligated to shoot what was in the script, there was only so much he could do despite his and Lee’s best instincts. Sources say that while the second half of New Mutants is basically locked at this point, the first half of the film needs some work, and that Boone will likely add a bunch of scares that didn’t initially appeal to Fox execs.
